Businesses start with an idea. Buildings start with a blueprint. Your Data Governance plan starts with a playbook. Data Governance is an information management approach that establishes decision rights regarding information. Often designed to mitigate regulatory, compliance, and legal risk exposure for your organization, a data governance program builds in the collaborative tools to help you deliver better products or services, support the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), improve your operational effectiveness, and enable more informed decision-making up to the executive level.

Your Data Governance Playbook is the map for your Data Governance plan: the high-level policies and standards that will be the mission statement for managing your information through its lifecycle. Built for business professionals who manage or work with information—data stewards, business analysts, and subject matter experts—as well as IT professionals and compliance officers, the Playbook is your record of why each protocol exists, which standards encapsulate it, and the processes you use to make it happen.

Data Policies, Standards and Processes

Your Data Governance Playbook documents each step in the Data Governance journey:

  • Data Governance Policies provide a high-level framework for decisions regarding data;
  • Data Governance Standards provide detailed information on how Data Governance Policies should be implemented. Each Data Governance Policy relates to one or more Data Governance Standards;
  • Data Governance Processes provide detailed procedures to implement Data Governance Standards. Each Data Governance Standard relates to one or more Data Governance Processes.
